The Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – alongside the Houthis and popular committees – clashed with the Saudi-led Coalition at the border-town of Mede on Tuesday, resulting in a fierce battle that accumulated a high death toll for all parties involved.

Saudi-led forces repeatedly attempted to breach the Yemeni Army’s front-line defenses at the coastal town of Midi near the nation’s capital of Sanaa; however, these attacks failed to yield any gains and ultimately resulted in their withdrawal north towards the Saudi border.

Adding to the plight of the Saudi-led Coalition in Yemen, the Houthi forces seized the Al-Rasha Mountains that overlook the town of Jadaan in the Mareb Governorate, leaving several Saudi soldiers and mercenaries dead.

In response to the Yemeni Army’s gains, Saudi warplanes launched a number of raids at the recently captured city of Al-Dhubab in the Ta’iz Governorate, killing several civilians in the process.
